Garza LDC Amendments

Post by Delia Garza » Fri Dec 06, 2019 3:46 pm

Dear colleagues,
I would like to share with you all the amendments (3) I will be bringing forward.


BOUNDARIES: The area for the overlay should be delineated by the vulnerability map in the UT Uprooted study. Staff has already proposed this in their report.

PRESERVE EXISTING MULTIFAMILY: For current affordable multi-family

-Map and zone to current structure and appropriate RM zone
-No new height (in the base or bonus)

ONSITE AFFORDABILITY: Promote more onsite affordability
-Require onsite affordability to be at least 10% of the total and no fee in lieu option

FUTURE REVISIONS OF THE OVERLAY: Overlay should be looked at and revised after 3 years and tied to the Census.


-Increase the number of children allowed in the Childcare Large use from a maximum of 24 kids to 36 kids
-Allow as a permitted use childcare large under R3, R4
-Allow a MUP for Childcare commercial use under RM1


-Allow small neighborhood grocers as CUP in all zones

DIRECTION: Work with Economic Department to identify the square footage of a small neighborhood grocer and where this type of use can benefit areas that have difficulties accessing healthy food options.

Thank you,

Mayor Pro Tem, District 2
